I am looking for an old BASIC(?)-programmed DOS game. It is about defending North America from an invasion of killer bees. I believe the file was SWARM.EXE, and I'm pretty sure it was freeware. [more inside]

80s CGA Cat Breeding game?

There's this quasi-educatainment game that I had in the 80s. It was CGA graphics, on MS-DOS... The idea was breeding cats with dominant and recessive genes. The only cat game I can seem to find online is Alley Cat, but that's nothing like it. This game is a grid of something like 4 cats across, and 2 down. I don't remember what the exact point of the game was.

What's the name of this DOS game from my childhood?

When I was a kid I played a DOS game that involved a man running through mazes and avoiding man-eating worms to collect pieces to build a knight. The game ends with the completed knight fighting a dragon. Does anyone have any idea what this game was called?
